If you also have a racing heart rate, as I do, well here's a simple remedy for that as well: Whenever you feel your heart racing, you simply put your hand on your neck and for some reason that will slow your heart rate within a very few minutes.
Weird, I know, but it's reduced my visits to the emergency room to nil.
I take Omega 3 for tachycardia and it works.
I take 2 fish oil capsules per day. They have 360 mg EPA & 240 mg DHA. Warning: don't take at night because it activates the brain and may keep you up. Take 30 minutes before you eat for best results.
I don't really like posting anything but I know how frustrating it can be to have tachycardia or arrhythmia and taking really hard medications is not really good for our bodies. I have SVT type of tachycardia and have ongoing attacks all day long. I have used Beta-Blocker for 10 years and just recently started taking Tambacor. I've also have had 3 ablations and the last one I had, made me develop a new rhythm in another part of my heart. I've tried every type of natural remedied that is listed in this forum..
My husband experienced a head injury and the doctor recommended him using Melatonin because he needed to have better sleep at night. I decided to start using it too and at that time I was taking tambacor and experiencing dizzy spells from it. I decided to go off the Tambacor. When I went off this medication I didn't have any tachycardia episodes I've been taking Melatonin for 6 months now and I can honestly say I have not had one episode. I take one 5mg pill at night, and it seem to do the trick.
The Melatonin has changed my life, I no longer rely on hard horrible medications to control my arrhythmia. Plus I get a better sleep at night and no side effects.
I hope this information will help someone, that's having to rely on using these horrible medications.
I have found hawthorn and motherwort together to be a reliable cure for my PSVT's (paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia) in which my heart would race at speeds of 160 to even over 200 per minute.
First, I use a liquid extract, alcohol free if possible. I used to use an alcohol extract but it did not work anything like the alcohol-free. After experimenting with different manufacturers I settled on Nature's Answer alcohol-free hawthorn and Nature's Answer low-alcohol motherwort. These people are based in Hauppauge, New York, and I have no connection with them whatever except as happy user of their products. After a couple years, Nature's Answer turned their hawthorn into hawthorn berry (which it was originally), leaf and flower. On the Net I found this combo supposedly reinforced the properties of the hawthorn berry. I found it had no different ability to stop my cardiac arrhythmia. Same speed.
Nature's Answer motherwort is about 15 percent alcohol. Some experimentation with different manufacturers years ago made it clear you can't put motherwort in solution without using some alcohol, or it will come out of solution. Even so, you still need to shake the motherwort extract to get it evenly distributed.
This stuff can get rid of an attack of PSVTs like lightning. I keep a quarter ounce bottle with glass eye dropper on me at all times, mixed with a 50% hawthorn-50% motherwort mixture. That 50 percent is by volume, not weight, say a full level teaspoon of each. And I shake each one thoroughly before adding to the mix.
Once in a while I will get a warning jump in my chest saying my heart could go into fast heartbeat. I will sit down as soon as possible, take out my bottle of herbs, shake it well, and fill the dropper about 1/3 to 1/2 full. I always sit or lie down whenever I get a heart incident so I don't have any strain on the heart, and I will stay down for maybe ten minutes.
If I have gone into full tachycardia, where my heart is beating 160-200 beats a minute, I don't care where I am, I lie down. I get my bottle of herbs out, shake it thoroughly, and put a dropper full into my mouth. How fast is it? Once when I couldn't lie down, I was in my car on the freeway, I parked it as soon as I could and took my dropper full. I couldn't get the dropper back in the bottle fast enough to beat my heart getting back to normal. It took one second for my heartbeat to resume normal beating.
This remedy has NEVER failed me. I have gotten into the habit, over the years, of taking 1/3 dropper full after breakfast, 1/3 dropper full after lunch, and 1/3 dropper full after supper. I have noticed that scars that seemed to be getting deeper with age began to disappear, to where they are barely noticeable nowadays. I am 81.
Symptoms that might accompany this remedy being more effective: the tongue is red compared to a fresh cut pork chop. The left pulse between the wrist crease and the head of the radius tends to be weak, perhaps weaker than the pulse at any other position.
I can't guarantee this will work for you. I can tell you it is greased lightning working on me. My incidence of heart palpitations has dropped from several bouts per week to perhaps one every two to five years. I NEVER leave my hawthorn-motherwort on the dresser at home. It is in my pocket at all times.
